"the new york times" reporting this morning that president obama will call for a new minimum tax rate for millionaires and will dub the proposal the buffett rule in reference to billionaire warren buffett who has advocated that the superrich should pay their fair share of taxes. but what are the prospects now among republicans? what sort of plan is realistic in the midst of this election cycle? here with us for two live interviews, the republican leader of the senate, mitch mcconnell, and former president of the united states, bill clinton. leader mcconnell, let me start with you and ask you whether this president's plan on a million

to congress. rick from michigan, republican. caller: your guests represent two different points of view. i do not want one guy to speak to me at all. the one problem in the government is the federal reserve. we have been under the thumb of the reserve from 1913. these people are running the economy. obama cannot do anything. the congress has given up their constitutional responsibility. we need to redo this whole thing. the system is broke. we pay a gasoline tax. that is supposed to pay all the road costs. we're paying too much tax as it is. we need to eliminate the federal income tax. the others need to be looked at. we have to look at the monetary system. if you print another $447 billion -- we are broke. host: does get reaction. what did you think about his comments? -- let's get reaction. guest: he doesn't want me to talk because i do not agree with this point of view. one of the big problems of the federal reserve is that it is not doing as much as it could be doing to fight the recession. you have ben bernanke doing a lot of pretty aggressive moves. he has not done big quantitative easi
're a republican running for president, you want to be in either michigan or florida this weekend. that's where two major straw polls are being held. cnn reporter peter hamby joining us from orlando, florida. peter, why is the contest there, florida, florida, florida, considered so important? >> reporter: florida will be the state in the general election, no doubt next year, one of them, one of the major swing states. but the state republican primary will be pivotal. the candidates believe, people in florida believe it was for john mccain in 2008 when he defeated mitt romney and catapulted himself to presidency. presidency five is the name of the confab, a philly day event, started with a debate thursday night, a conference where they all spoke. today a straw poll where 3500 or so republican activists will cast a vote in the straw poll and pick for president. rick perry is the only candidate competing in the straw poll, courting the delegates. he's expected to win. if he doesn't win, that would be a big surprise, fred. >> let's talk about another straw poll, this one being held in michigan. what's
. that could be tragic. >> and of course perry will not win wisconsin or minnesota. he won't win michigan. he wouldn't win pennsylvania. he wouldn't win new jersey. he wouldn't win any of these swing states. >> he's not a blue state guy. no doubt about it. >> all right. mike murphy, stay with us. george pataki -- >> thank you. >> thank you so much for being here. come back soon if you will. >> sure will. >> all right. >> he's in the green room. >> we have standing by former president alvero rebay of colombia to discuss this week's united nations summit. also joining him the president of georgia and nbc chief foreign affairs correspondent andrea mitchell. up next former governor jennifer granholm and her husband with their new book. also "the washington post" eugene robinson. you're watching "morning joe" brewed by starbucks.

of the two top front-runners left florida to be in michigan where there is a g.o.p. gathering for the remainder of this weekend. perry arrived there a short while ago. mr. romney got there last night after having spent the day in indiana. so it's a particulay important straw poll, too. there is only two that matter in the aggregate for presidential politics. one in iowa, we saw that. michele bachmann won it but hasn't been able to capitalize on the victory. the florida straw poll, this one is the fifth presidential cycle where this convention is taking place. has been indicator in the past, the people that won the straw polls went on to be president. ronald reagan, george h. bush were all winners. they won the straw poll and ended up in the white house. a lot is riding on this and the perry campaign is looking for a big win. you're right about that. romney is not organizing. jon huntsman is ignoring it. the candidates that took part in the fox news debate will be on the ballot with the exception of gary johnson, the new mexico governor who simply didn't participate. >> uma: it
medication, astrazeneca may be able to help. >>> the political spotlight is on florida and michigan this weekend. earlier today, mitt romney won the straw poll at the republican conference of 681 votes cast, romney captured 51% and candidate rick perry won 16%. in the florida straw poll yesterday, involving the republican presidential candidates, herman cain was the big winner, collecting 37% of the votes. rick perry came in second. and michele bachmann got just 1%. cain said the win shows he cannot be ignored. >>> what does the florida straw poll win mean for herman cain's campaign and is new jersey governor chris christie being pressured to enter the presidential race. earlier today, i spoke with political blogger danielle belton about the changing political landscape of the presidential race. so, danielle, leading up to this straw poll, some were willing to say that this was a two-man race between romney and perry. herman cain's win in florida, that straw poll, how much of a game changer is this? >> well, you know, as exciting as this probably is for herman cain and people who su
will it affect his re-election chance? our roundtable weighs in. former michigan governor jennifer granholm, and republican strategist alex castellanos. also here, helene cooper of "the new york times." and "time" magazine's mark halperin. after this brief commercial break.

. >> yeah, florida and then also as well michigan this morning. let's start in michigan, the re. at the top, mitt romney with 51% of the delegates voting for him. we knew he would do well, the former massachusetts governor was born in michigan, his dad was a popular governor. romney won the republican primary last time around. perry way down in -- way, way back there. he did go to michigan to campaign for this. but not so well in the results. let's go to the one out of florida. this is the florida presidency five. the winner was not rick perry, which a lot of people thought he would be. it was herman cain by a long shot. there is rick perry at 15%. romney at 14 and so on. and, fred, this is interesting because maybe these results are a reflection of the uneven debate performances we have seen from rick perry, both in florida. could be troubling. he's still the front-runner but this is troubling for rick perry. >> so straw polls, how important are they really? >> yes and no. they're a test of a campaign outreach to activists. important republicans. but, no, listen, if it was all about straw
the jobs numbers and this city suffering worst than most. unemployment here is at -- well, in michigan it's at 10.9%, but in detroit it's almost at 16%. over 50% are among the long-term unemployed. why does that matter in this is a state that the president won by 17 points. and now his approval rating in the state is at 34%. those are bismol numbers, ted. he has to get the numbers up if he hopes to win re-election. we will see the president here not just today but a lot in the next year as he campaigns for re-election. >> any hint on what he will talk about today and specifically if there will be any sneak peek into what he will deliver on thursday in terms of his plan? >> in terms of the plan we will hear him talk about the fact that he will press for measures that had bipartisan support in the past. this is a big theme for the white house, the kinds of initiatives he is proposing to increase job employment in this country, and they have had the support of republicans previously so should again. i know that we will have him talk about the importance of having a strong middle class for ec
of michigan, now an msnbc contributor, and the author of a brand-new book "a governor's story, a fight for jobs in america's future." and bob strum is an economic strategist. i want you to listen to this. clinton strategist mark penn who worked for the clintons said, "obama's new tone won't work." he writes in "the huffington post, "quote, barack obama is careening down the wrong path towards re-election. he should be claiming the vital center, not abandoning it. he should be holding down taxes rather than raising them. he should be bringing the country together rather than dividing it through class warfare. that's mark penn. he's critiquing the president's new move to divide the country between those who want fair taxes and those who are rich, who don't. your thoughts, bob shrum? >> well, you know, that's marcus saying this kind of stuff all the time. two reactions to it. first, it was a remarkably fact-free and numbers-free piece from a guy who's supposed to be a pollster. he says, for example, that gore lost -- i actually he won, but that gore lost because he was too populist. he ta

chairman from michigan. >> thank you. in 2009, solyndra was the first to receive a d.o.e. eight loans funded by stimulus dollars. it is a model for how the government's venture capital program and green technology should work. they have filed for bankruptcy. we are starting to look at d.o.e. loan guarantee program. some questioned the basis for this investigation. after wrangling to produce relevant documents, the committee was forced to submit a subpoena. i think this shows the committee was more than justify it in scrutiny of the deal. pursuant to our functions, we have a responsibility to pursue answers regarding the use of taxpayer money. this raises several questions about whether the administration did everything it could to protect dollars. why did the administration think solyndra was such a good bet and push ahead to provide a solyndra guaranteed this year? why did d.o.e. allow the government to be subordinated to the private investors and a violation of the log? i look forward to the testimony. i want to know what the failure means for the loan guarantee program. is it the t
poll result. the other one that came out this weekend, michigan, and mitt romney is at the top. no surprise here. listen, romney was born in michigan. his father a former governor there. very popular. romney won the primary there back in 2008. he was expected to win. but perry did go up to michigan and campaign and he was a distant second. for perry, i think a lot of people are saying that those uneven debate performances, especially last week and the attacks on rick perry over his stance on illegal immigration, may be taking a toll. one other thing from the debates or from the straw polls, michele bachmann nowhere to be seen near the top. remember she won the straw poll in iowa in august. but she finished very low down in both of these straw polls. one thing about those, they are important. they are a gauge or a test or a barometer of a campaign with a lot of activists. they are not the end all and be all. if they were, herman cain or ron paul would be the nominee, and nobody thinks that is very likely, kyra. >> mitt romney going to meet with donald trump today. what is it abo
